PC Software & Drivers

This section describes various ways to interface the Ophir meter to your PC as well as the software options available. Check out the datasheet for more details.


The StarLab application together with an Ophir meter turns your PC or laptop into a full-fledged laser power/energy meter. Supports most Ophir laser power/energy sensors. Up to 8 sensors can be displayed at once on one PC. By using the Ophir COM Object, you can control the device from your own application. Supports the Ariel, Centauri, StarBright, StarLite, Juno, Juno+, Nova II, Vega, Pulsar-1/2/4, Quasar, EA-1 and Ariel devices.


Library supplied for a complete measurement interface with most of our USB speaking devices (Centauri, StarBright, StarLite, Juno, Juno+, Nova-II, Pulsar, Vega). Makes use of our new COM object.


StarViewer turns your Android or iOS based smartphone into a portable Ophir laser power / energy measurement monitor.
The iOS version of StarViewer works with Ariel sensor.
The Android version of StarViewer works with Ariel, as well as with Juno and Quasar interfaces.

Wireless Bluetooth Laser Measurements with the Quasar

The Ophir Quasar is a Bluetooth interface that enables you to connect a laser sensor to a PC, or to an Android smartphone or tablet, without cables. In this short video, you’ll learn what it can do and how to get started using it.

Laser Measurement PC Interfaces

If all your laser measurement work involves a laptop or a PC, rather than a stand-alone meter, one of Ophir's direct-to-PC interfaces could be an ideal solution. These are full-fledged Laser Power and Energy meters, but instead of having a separate on-board display, the PC becomes your display. In this video you will learn about the range of PC Interfaces available from Ophir.
